    Books on Integrative and Holistic Medicine

    I have some books I would love to share with other NCAM members! You can borrow from me Smile

    Health and Healing: The Philosophy of Integrative Medicine and Optimum Health by Andrew Weil, MD


    Dr. Andrew Weil’s groundbreaking handbook for people who want to take control of their lives and their health, Health and Healing presents the full spectrum of alternative healing practices, including holistic medicine, homeopathy, osteopathy, chiropractic, and Chinese medicine, and outlines how they differ from conventional approaches. The philosophical basis for his work in integrative medicine and optimum health, Health and Healing draws on Weil’s own vast clinical and personal experience, as well as on case studies from around the world.


    The Future of Healing: Exploring the Parallels of Eastern and Western Medicine by Michael P Milburn, PhD

    Chinese medicine, with its focus on herbal therapy and acupuncture as healing tools, dates back thousands of years. Advocates of Western medicine are only now beginning to appreciate this ancient holistic view that marries mind, body, nutrition, lifestyle, and energy fields. Dr. Milburn explores the fascinating convergence between these two seemingly diverse approaches and speculates on how this intersection will affect Western medicine’s future.

    The DOs: Osteopathic Medicine in America by Norman Gevitz.

    Great read for anyone wanting to know the history of Western medical practice

    Overcoming suspicion, ridicule, and outright opposition from the American Medical Association, the osteopathic medical profession today serves the health needs of more than thirty million Americans. The DOs chronicles the development of this controversial medical movement from the nineteenth century to the present. Historian Norman Gevitz describes the philosophy and practice of osteopathy, as well as its impact on medical care. From the theories underlying the use of spinal manipulation developed by osteopathy's founder, Andrew Taylor Still, Gevitz traces the movement's early success, despite attacks from the orthodox medical community, and details the internal struggles to broaden osteopathy's scope to include the full range of pharmaceuticals and surgery. He also recounts the efforts of osteopathic colleges to achieve parity with institutions granting M.D. degrees and looks at the continuing effort by osteopathic physicians and surgeons to achieve greater recognition and visibility.

    In print continuously since 1982, The DOs has now been thoroughly updated and expanded to include two new chapters addressing recent and current challenges and to bring the history of the profession up to the beginning of the new millennium.

    Yeah just let me know when you want to borrow them Smile Maybe we could even have an NCAM resource library! I have gotten a lot of pamphlets and such from some Naturopathic & Osteopathic Universities, and various programs pertaining to Integrative Health Smile

    I also have a PDF copy of a book on integrative/Chinese medicine titled "The Web That Has No Weaver: Understanding Chinese Medicine" by Dr. Ted J. Kaptchuck if anyone is interested! That wouldn't exactly go into the library, but it is available if anyone would like to read it Smile
